Before becoming Fort Worth’s newest hotspot, Mule Alley (131 E Exchange Av) was just a row of mule barns. Now with renovations of the Stockyards area nearly complete, it’s time to celebrate. On Fri-Sat, The Biscuit Bar, Cowtown Winery, and Provender Hall will throw a big ol’ bash with live music, delicious food, and a bevy of adult beverages.

Drink specials at The Biscuit Bar (128 E Exchange Av, Ste 640) include $5 cocktails and $3 domestic beer, wine, and beer on tap, and there will be a Lucchese boot giveaway. Cowtown Winery (128 E Exchange Av, Ste 610, 817-626-1011) will have $5 frozen daiquiris, margaritas, and piña coladas, plus 20% off all bottles of wine. Chef Marcus Paslay’s new concept, Provender Hall (128 E Exchange Av, Ste 110, 817-782-9170), is offering happy-hour drink specials and half-priced oysters from 4pm to 6pm both days.

Starting at 4pm both days, enjoy the Biscuit & Jams live music series with Squeezebox Bandits and Tommy Luke on Fri and Alex Bellin and Trees Marie on Sat.
